10 things I’d rather be doing… (Contest)
Wednesday, May 3rd, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…Jeanette Whetzel!

Here’s a little list of 10 things I’d rather be doing today, listed in no particular order…

  • 🎨 Painting!!
  • 🏊‍♀️ Swimming
  • 📚 Reading a naughty book
  • 🛍️ Shopping at the flea market
  • 🍦 Eating an ice cream cone
  • 🚶‍♀️ Walking a short trail
  • 🦶 Cutting my toenails
  • 🪒 Shaving my legs (although I barely have any leg hair!)
  • 😾 Giving my cat a bath
  • 📿 Unknotting a tangled necklace chain

Okay, so the first six are positive things. The last four are snarky. The point is, I don’t want to work today. Again. But I have to. Bleh.

You know what’s coming next! 😈

For a chance to win a $5 Amazon GC, tell me five things you’d rather be doing!

    Eating cake
    Visiting & having lunch with friends
    Getting my entryway closet cleaned out (it’s a mess & there’s so much junk I keep avoiding it)
    Reading, reading & more reading.

    Of course what I’m doing right this minute…sitting in the recliner with my 3 yr old grandson & we’re going to take our nap…is something I really like doing.

    I am getting ready for a manger move, so I would rather be doing anything rather than sorting and packing. Like unpacking and putting away. Visiting and meeting new friends. Going for a walk. Exploring the new neighborhood. Back to sorting and packing.

    Reading a book a the seashore with my toes in the water. There would be no one around for miles. Taking a long walk on the beach at dusk. Sitting on a dock enjoying a great sunrise. Getting my house clean. Organize my closets and drawers. Cleaning out my car.

    I am retired now, so life is pretty perfect. My five have to include reading, eating cake, a walk along a beach, a chat with my daughter and watching House of Dragons.

    How to narrow it down to 5? I would rather be:
    Art–anything, exp painting
    Writing–always at the bottom of the list and I never get to it.
    Chilling in a CLEAN (done by someone else) house.
    Building puzzles
    Needlework, esp plastic canvas projects

    It was refreshing seeing how many people would rather be doing something else. I’m not the only one! And your lists? I may borrow them sometime. LOL
